Update: I DID put some feta into this salad and was glad I did. I think I need to use less dressing. I want the flavor of the dressing but only just. Really the rest of the ingredients are nearly enough... This gets five from me for sheer brilliance. We made this because everything in it is a favorite food item though we'd never have thought to throw them all together. Once we did we weren't sure how good it would be but we were very very pleased and can't wait to make it again. Though next time I'm determined to crumble some feta cheese over it as well.
This salad was delicious -- wonderfully refreshing and an unexpected combination. A definite keeper. It was delightful to eat it tonight with a simple grilled steak. Here's how I made it quick and easy: I bought de-seeded and cut watermelon pieces from our supermarket and also fresh spinach that the market had washed and trimmed for consumption. Proportions of these are not critical: I estimated the proportions of the ingredients to reduce the recipe to serve the two of us well. For the avocado I used half of a perfectly ripe Hass avocado. Here's how I glorified it: Instead of using bottled dressing I made a balsamic dressing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for this salad again by estimating proportions. I added some honey and salt and pepper to taste and...some fennel seed -- all of this this whirred in the food processor for a couple of minutes until completely smooth and emulsified.
I had just read an article about the amazing health benefits of watermelon (lycopene) but the doctor said to maximize the benefits of it it should be paired with spinach & avocado but he doubted that would be too appetizing. I'm thrilled to find this combination works!!
My 14 year old daughter made this for a school project on healthy eating. No one in my family thought we would like it. We all loved it! It was very crisp and refreshing. Great on a hot day. Would cut down on the dressing a little bit. Thanks for a great new experience.
